VOICELESS ISSUES PROGRAMS
Confronting social issues is a delicate challenge. Let The Sapphire be a strategic partner in unpacking the complexity for your audience. More than just awareness, your audiences will experience and learn practical steps for true positive change.
Our Voiceless Issues Programs are interactive performances designed for extraordinary audiences in exceptional circumstances. Today’s complex social issues are so challenging and divisive that it’s hard to know where to start meaningful conversations. We stage stories, based on real events, to allow audiences to engage in meaningful dialogue. Rather than presenting topics in a detached, general terms, our programs focus on the very people struggling with the issues.
Programs are available virtually and with customized content. Email Bonnie@SapphireTheatre.com for more information.
